Default Savage B17 UPDATE!

Has anyone seen a B17 on the shelf in Nor Cal? I'd like to fondle one before I order it...or if some place has the FV in stock, I'd buy it.

Thanks!

Update-

Ordered one today. I'll report back when it comes and I have a chance to play with it.

So.. do you have it yet? I'm poised to buy a .17, but still fence sitting between the Savage and CZ 455

Good to know. I'm leaning toward the B-17FV. It looks like a decent rifle for the pricepoint. I like the rotary mag and new safety over the 93.

Apparently there's a B17G with a really nice looking wood stock, but it's priced significantly higher.

I have the FV on order. The reasons you listed are why I chose it over the 93 or xt-17. For around $300, it seemed like a lot of rifle. That reminds me, I'm gonna have to call the shop tomorrow and bug them.

I visited my LGS today. He didn't have one in stock but checked his supplier who said he had several, so I ordered one.

Be careful with the savage mine is extremely accurate but I'm having trouble with light firing strikes

Mine got broke out of jail today. Scope is mounted, new leather sling made, ammo in hand. Off to the ranch to shoot tomorrow :-)

I took my new B17 FV out today. The bolt is a bit finicky to replace after removal, and a full mag is a tight fit in the well. It takes quite a push to get it to snap in. Other than that, the rifle is solidly built. I poked 50 rounds through it, and after getting it sighted in at 100 yds, we did some squirrel hunting. That Hornady 17gr Vmax is devastating on a ground squirrel. I'm happy with the value of the rifle, overall.
